On each system’s internal, direct-attached storage sits three copies of Big Data, much of which is copied across multiple clusters. Does this sound familiar? Is this as good as it gets?

Cyfronet AGH to deploy leadership supercomputer with HP Apollo 8000 1.7 petaFLOPS system

While the HP Apollo 8000 system has been making waves this past week in New Orleans at SC14. It was in Poland that Apollo was making news the past month. Poland’s Cyfronet AGH announced its acquisition of a new HP Apollo System called Prometheus to create a leading supercomputing resource for Polish and international scientific collaborations. Prometheus will be the world’s largest installation of HP’s innovative water cooled HP Apollo 8000, but just what does that mean for Cyfronet AGH? What IT benefits will this enable and what does that mean for their end user?
